$250 1997 Ford Explorer | First Start After Sitting For 1 Year
I CAN'T RESPOND TO COMMENTS. GOOGLE+ IS MESSED UP ON MY ACCOUNT!!!!
Recently obtained a 1997 Ford Explorer Sport, and this is the first time
it's started in over a year.
We recently moved to a new house, and I noticed this truck sitting near the
house. I talked to the landlord and found out that a previous renter had
left this Explorer there due to an electrical problem. She said scrap
wouldn't even give her $200 for it, so I said I'll buy it for $250. The
plan is for me to fix it, get it in good shape again, and sell it for a
It's a 1997 Ford Explorer Sport. It's the 2-door model, 4.0l OHV pushrod
V6, 5-speed manual transmission, dual range 4WD. It has 342,429 miles on it
(551,086 kilometers), which is a lot.
I took a look at it, and came up with a list of problems on it. I was
unsure if it'd be worth it, if I'd be able to make a profit. But I didn't
want to it to go to the junkyard. I decided I would try and get it to
start. I didn't want to spend a lot of money since I didn't know if it had
a major internal problem.
I ended up paying $160 or so for new battery terminals, a new starter
solenoid, and a new starter motor. Starter motor was a PITA to replace
because of Ford's ridiculous engineering, but I got it done. And it started
right up!! As you can tell, I was happy about it.
With the engine running, I had the chance to test everything. The only
things that don't work are the A/C, power mirrors, headlights, and rear
wiper. But I will go on and try and fix those things.
Next step is to change out the fluids. New oil, new oil filter, new
coolant, and new power steering fluid. Also gonna change out the air
filter, spark plugs, and spark plug wires.
With all that done, I'm gonna make a run to the junkyard to make this thing
driveable (seat doesn't stay upright and steering wheel is loose).
Then gotta get it cleaned up and registered.
I can definitely keep posting videos as this thing progresses!

How to remove and replace the spark plugs/coil packs on a 4th/5th gen
This is an updated video to replace the one from a few years ago that was
completely washed out and didn't really cover the subject as well as I
would have liked.
Tools required are a 8mm socket (or phillips head screwdriver), 5/8" plug
socket, extensions, 4mm allen key/bit socket for the front coil cover
bolts, and a 12mm socket for the EVAP CPVCV (if so equipped).

2013 Nissan Altima vs Maxima 0-60 MPH Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The brand new 2013 Nissan Altima and the new 2013
Nissan Maxima are two family sedans cut from the same cloth. Of course the
Maxima is Nissan's top of the line sedan while the Nissan Altima slots
right below the Maxima in both price and performance...or at least so we
thought until we tested both cars in another fun and informative TFLcar
Mashup Review. There's of course no doubt that the Maxima is the more
expensive of the two Nissan sedans. It also can be had with the more
powerful V6 but what about size and performance and perhaps more
importantly which car is the better driver. Check out this video comparison
to find out which Nissan sedan is really the top dog.
